  • Zulu Queen – African Lady wearing an Izicolo

    £890.00

    This painting was an absolute joy to create! I created an ‘izicolo’, a circular hat worn by married Zulu women, using red and brown Lego pieces and acrylic paint. When I finished the painting I was struck by how majestic the izicolo looked, so I felt that the name ‘Zulu Queen’ was fitting. Throughout history the beauty of African women has been devalued in so many ways, so creating artwork like this is a way for me to celebrate a type of beauty that is unique, striking, and regal.

    Description

    Zulu Queen – African Lady wearing an Izicolo is the third in a series of artworks that celebrates Black African women. For this particular painting I created an ‘izicolo’, a circular hat worn by married Zulu women, using red and brown Lego pieces and acrylic paint. When I finished the painting I was struck by how majestic the izicolo looked, so I felt that the name ‘Zulu Queen’ was fitting.

    It all started with a bag of Lego that I randomly bought in 2021. I began to play with the Lego and discovered that I could combine Lego with acrylic paint to create unique pieces of art that are fun and inspirational. It’s the kind of art that both children and adults can appreciate, and it can be displayed in almost any setting.

    Lego was one of my favourite things to play with as a child; I loved that it allowed me to make just about anything. Even now as an adult I’m blown away by what a versatile creative tool Lego is! I’ve created acrylic paintings in my spare time over the past 20 odd years, but the addition of Lego to my paintings has added another dimension which I find exciting and expansive.
